I am a weekly Aldi shopper for the basics and am always impressed by the quality of the fresh fruits and vegetables for the prices. I also purchase meat, eggs and milk there in addition to baking products. You have to remember to have your .25 ready to get a cart and pack your bags but it's worth the savings.
I first discovered Patel's while living in NYC and was a bit pleased to see that there was a location here in Decatur. Patel's is an Indian grocery store carries lots of spices, sauces and foods from that region. You can buy saffron ice cream, sauce to make butter chicken, warm samosas and parathas.
Cutest candy/toy/liquor store! They offer birthday parties, old fashion toys and an assortment of candy & home made fudge in whatever quantities you want!
If there's a long line.. The owner will open a lane!!
